Product description

Somewhere a Voice is Calling

John Lodwick

William Heinemann Ltd, London, Melbourne, Toronto, 1953.

First edition.

Hardback; 135 x 200 mm; dark blue boards with gold titles on spine; 445 pages. No dust jacket.

The book is in good condition. The binding is sound though the book is slightly cocked. Only very minor wear to the boards. Page end tanning. Small pencil annotation and a small bookseller’s label on front paste-down endpaper. A couple of very small open tears with no loss of text. Some marks here and there. Pencil inscription (name and address) on verso of the back free endpaper.

“An intellectualized melodrama again features a man of violence (Brother Death) and transcribes the brooding, wayward, uneasy and implacable retribution of Thornton, in the consular service in Spain. Now married to Dominique, Thornton is still pacing across the grave of his first wife, Gloria, whose quixotic charms revive a memory of hate rather than love and whose infidelities still obsess him. On his way back to France, Thornton is detained (on a rigged charge) by his superior, Carter, and only later in Minorca does he learn that Carter was Gloria's first lover. There he transfers his unremitting, unrelenting suspicions to Dominique, fancies that Carter has become her lover during their current, enforced separation, and the murder which assuages his festering suspicions becomes invalid with the knowledge that Carter is innocent in Dominique's transgression... A civilized and circumscribed drama of the downbeat to destruction, this does not always walk a straight line and is slowed by many conversational gambits as it makes its way through the Southern Pyrenees where however the countryside and native characters are knowledgeably observed.” (Kirkus Review 12 October 1953)
